headspace provides early intervention mental health services for 12-25 year olds. We aim to make access to our services as easy as possible, especially for a young person and their family to get the help they need for issues affecting their mental health and wellbeing.

Based on our knowledge, the headspace model understands that early adulthood is a critical time in a person’s life. Research highlights that more than 75 per cent of mental health issues begin before the age of 25. By supporting our young people early in life, we are setting them up to get things back on track heading into the future.

Your donation will enable headspace to continue to promote, at a national level, the importance of seeking help for mental health issues, to break down the stigma and make sure every young Australian knows there is help available.
